“Filip Blecha was the best player of Vlašim this season and one of the best players of the Czech second division. For our strategic cooperation with Vlašim we consider this move important to demonstrate that their best players have a chance to fight for their place in Slavia. It is an important signal for our young players in Vlašim,” said Slavia director of football Jiří Bílek.
Filip Blecha left with Slavia first team for the training camp in Portugal. His spell for the rest of the 2021/22 season will be decided after their return.
“I cannot imagine how I feel coming from the second division directly to Slavia. It is a huge step, and I am glad for it. I hope I will catch on in Slavia and I will fight here for titles and cups,” Blecha said after the signing.
